NBC’s ‘The Voice’ review: Courtney Harrell, Dave Moisan, Michael Sanchez perform in second Battle Rounds show
The Battle Rounds are now back on “The Voice,” and this second episode is going to have to work hard to cram in more than three singing showdowns. Maybe they will, but if so it’ll happen during a montage. We’re focusing mostly here on the singers who actually got some screen time, and the ones who had a chance to impress both us and the coaches.
As per usual, we’ll be updating this as the show continues on with some further updates on the singers.
Sophia Urista defeats Lane Mack, Team Miley – Our first battle of the night featured two singers who had a fairly close performance on “Money.” (By the way, we personally love that someone actually performed a Pink Floyd song on this show; it’s so rare.) Miley said that she wanted to continue to working with her. Lane did a fine job, but unfortunately, there was no steal here.
Courtney Harrell defeats Ethan Tucker, Team Blake – We cannot say that we were too surprised to see this result, mostly because she’s got not only the biggest voice on Blake’s team, but has such musical credibility and connections. This was the right result, but we will miss Ethan.
We barely got to see any of the montages, but we do feel for Charity Bowden in particular, given that she hardly was the recipient of charity on the show: Going home after being montaged twice.
Michael Sanchez defeats Dave Moisan, Team Alicia – Two of the guys from Alicia Keys’ team closed things off with a really fun performance of “Valerie,” and there was a lot to celebrate here when it comes to energy. It was obvious that one of them would be stolen, and Dave is now on Team Adam. It’s hard to be altogether upset by that.
